EDIT: PLEASE EVERYONE READ THIS--- (people think they break, they work)
EDIT: Hey everyone, PLEASE read this if you're buying these. I thought mine were broken out of the box like so many others. For whatever reason I decided to actually call the manufacturer or in my case the distributor Nautilus (Amazon has a button that says get product support). I was frustrated and...

Bowflex, Ironmaster or Power Block?
I purchased a set of 552's earlier in the year when they were on sale for just over $200. I have had Power Blocks in the past and liked them but my wife hated having her hand inside the block and she was going to use this set of adjustable dumbbells as well. I ended up getting these and the stand an...

Barely used but broke anyway
The media could not be loaded. I only used this a few times. One of the two dumbbells is stuck with one of the “disks”/ weights on it. It doesn’t twist so I can not remove or add any weights. So unusable. If anyone has any tricks to get it twisting again let me know. I don’t want to spend tons of mo...

Going rate is $500. Over 30% of going rate is price gouging.
I bought a pair if these. The handle cracked on the one weight and 2 of the weight settings no longer work. The weights just fall off now. Also, I bought the Selecttwch 552 models for under $500. I called Bowflex and these should be available again in June or July of this year for around that price....

Broke after 8 months - Unable to contact seller for replacement
Like the dumbbells but they have broken with normal/recommended usage after only 8 months. One of the 2 dumbbells not longer rotates and a black plastic piece broke off. I'm trying to contact seller to see if I can get a replacement dumbbell but finding it impossible to contact the seller. I'm disap...

/r/Homegym - Weekly Free-talk - October 09, 2020
Well... It's more of a workout "area" than a gym at this point but I have my FID bench on the way and I by some miracle was able to grab a pair of Bowflex Selectech 552 dumbbells at my local sporting store. I was searching for those for about 2 and a half months and almost did a backflip when I got the last pair this morning. I have my bench on the way, my dip bars, and my weights now.
Poor plastic product design - don't waste your money
I was really pleased with these Dumbbells initially - simple to use and compact for a quick home workout. As you can see from the photos, they were well taken care of and used exclusively on soft carpet, not concrete. I never threw the weights or slammed them after a set, so not heavy use or abuse. ...

I love this set of dumbbells
I love this set of dumbbells. However, I was a little hesitant to purchase due to some of the reviews. Some reviews were stating the dumbbells were difficult to put back into the stand. I did not find this to be true at all. It is pretty simple to put back in the stand without difficulty. I know peo...

Home gym on a budget
I've been using these for over a year now and they have served me very well. You just have to understand their limitations- the main one being that you don't want to drop them on the floor. The other is that the max weight is 52.5 lbs. So yes, if you're very strong and you like going to failure, you...

Listed at 4x the price
Have mercy on your soul if you pay $1,200 plus for these. Such a disgrace amazon is stating that. They cost $330 max. Should know. Our family owns 2 sets.
